Kirby

Kirby (originally named Popopo) has been the star of a number of namesake games developed by HAL Laboratory (or HALKEN, as it was called in the 90's). Kirby has appeared in over twenty games since 1992 and has starred in his own animated series. The Kirby series has sold over 33 million units worldwide. The core games of the series are platformers. They typically begin with an evil force threatening his home of Dream Land (Pupupuland プププランド) on the planet Pop Star, most often the greedy King Dedede or mysterious Dark Matter. The main games always have Kirby with the same basic abilities; he can walk, run, jump, float, and inhale and spit out or swallow his enemies. Following Kirby's Dream Land, Kirby was able to gain the abilities of the enemies he swallowed, such as Fire, Sword, Fighter, and Cutter. Kirby also can spit water out of his mouth while underwater. Kirby also has had his own anime.

King Dedede

King Dedede, as seen in Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

King Dedede (デデデ大王 Dedede Daiō?) is a major recurring antagonist of the series. He is a jolly penguin-like monarch known to be fat and self-centered; furthermore, Dedede causes many problems for the inhabitants of Dream Land through selfish mischief, such as stealing Dream Land's food supplies for a midnight feast in Kirby's Dream Land, taking all of the stars from the sky, or merely just wanting revenge on Kirby. Despite this, he does care for Dream Land, and he works to protect it by destroying the Star Rod to keep Nightmare at bay in Kirby's Adventure and working with Kirby in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards to stop the Dark Matter. He has many of the same abilities as Kirby himself does, such as being able to inhale objects and spit them back out with tremendous force, and the ability to suck in air and fly.

King Dedede makes a return in Kirby Super Star Ultra. There is a new mode called Revenge of the King, which is basically a harder version of the original Spring Breeze. For the final battle between himself and Kirby, he sports a mask and an improved version of his hammer. This new hammer features new attacks, such as shooting missiles, flames, or spinning extremely fast. In addition, the arena is now caged and electrified.

King Dedede was originally intended to be a playable character in Super Smash Bros., but was cut due to time constraints; he does, however, appear in the background in the Dream Land stage and as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Melee[1] and was finally added as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, due to being one of the most requested characters to be playable in Japan,[1] where his main weapon, the "Jet Hammer", is a mechanized version of his usual mallet.[2]

In the anime series Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, King Dedede is presented as the supreme and incompetent ruler of Dream Land, with a castle atop a hill, overlooking Cappy Town. This version of the character is more rude and malicious, but ultimately ignored by the unimpressed populace. Dedede's main cause of inconvenience is his constant purchasing of monsters from Nightmare Enterprises to enforce his laws, create chaos, or to get rid of Kirby, whom he feels is a threat to his popularity and authority. King Dedede is voiced by Kenichi Ogata in the original Japanese version and Ted Lewis in the English dub. He is voiced by Masahiro Sakurai in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards and Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

Meta Knight

Meta Knight, as seen in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Meta Knight (メタナイト Meta Naito?) is an enigmatic character referred to as Kirby's rival, who often fights with him for different reasons, though they often arrive to the same goal.[3] He always wears a silver mask, and under it, he looks almost exactly like Kirby, though with a blue body and white facial features. He wears a navy blue cloak that can transform into a set of wings, and he wields a legendary sword called "Galaxia." He follows a code of honor, and usually lends Kirby a sword before they fight to be fair. Meta Knight is voiced by Atsushi Kisaichi in Japan, Eric Stuart in the English dub of the anime, and Jay Ward in the English version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. He is a popular character even among non-Kirby fans.

Meta Knight is often a boss and an ally of Kirby in the games. He first appears in Kirby's Adventure, where he fights Kirby to keep him from taking a piece of the Star Rod to keep it out of Nightmare's hands. He also helps to defeat Dark Mind in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror by lending Kirby his sword, giving Kirby the Master ability. He works to keep the chest containing Dark Nebula out of Kirby's hands in Kirby Squeak Squad. He is the main antagonist of the "Revenge of Meta Knight" mode in Kirby Super Star, in which he attempts to take over Dream Land in order to put an end to the inhabitants' lazy lifestyles. He is a playable character in special modes of Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land and Kirby Super Star Ultra. He is an unlockable character in Kirby: Canvas Curse as well, and he uses a combination of the Wing and Sword abilities in Kirby Air Ride. Meta Knight appears in Super Smash Bros. Melee as a trophy, and he also appears as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, where he utilizes his sword Galaxia as his main weapon. His aerial battleship, known as the Halberd, appears in both Kirby Superstar and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. In both games, its inner quarters are filled with enemies and traps arranged to defend against intruders.

Meta Knight is a main character in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. He is the last surviving member of the Galaxy Soldier Army, made up of "Star Warriors", of which Kirby is one. They are basically warriors who rebelled against Nightmare, the Knight class being the highest rank. It is disputed whether or not he is the same species as Kirby, since Kirby and Meta Knight share similar physical traits, and unmasked Meta Knight looks nearly exactly like kirby. However, the other Star Warriors come from a variety of backgrounds and races. He works for Dedede in order to help Kirby and keep watch over the activities of Nightmare Enterprises. He wields a golden, spiked sword called "Galaxia", and he often trains or defends Kirby to help him defeat Nightmare.

Main Villains

Zero and Dark Matter

Dark Matter, as seen in Kirby's Dream Land 2.

Zero and Dark Matter (ダークマター Dāku Matā?) are recurring antagonists in the series. Dark Matter's main form is that of a planet-sized dark cloud with a single eyeball. It can separate into smaller clouds lined with petal-like extensions. These can possess other beings, putting them under the control of Dark Matter. At the core of the giant cloud is Zero, a giant white creature with a Kirby-sized red eye, which controls the Dark Matter. It is a force of negative energy that lives a lonely existence. It is jealous of Dream Land's lifestyle, so it constantly targets it to recreate Pop Star into a dark world where no one can be happy. Zero surprisingly uses what seems to be "blood" to attack.

In Kirby's Dream Land 2, one small cloud first appears as a masked, robed being, wielding a magical sword. After being defeated, it assumes its small cloud form as it faces Kirby once again. In Kirby's Dream Land 3, Dark Matter attacks Pop Star, and possesses many of its inhabitants. Kirby eventually, after aiding various creatures in need (including some Nintendo cameos such as Samus Aran and R.O.B.), obtains the Love-Love Stick and defeats Dark Matter by destroying 0 (Zero). Dark Matter returns in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, where it begins to attack Pop Star and five other planets. After being repelled from all of the planets, it forms as the Dark Star. It is controlled by 0² (Zero Two), an angelic-looking form of 0 with a halo, geometric, segmented wings, and a green spiked tail (resembles a cactus), who is destroyed along with the star. The bandage on its head references the event when 0's eye exploded out of its body (a surprisingly bloody animation) and chased Kirby around. The "cactus" 02 symbolizes his undying hatred towards everything and its halo symbolizes its resurrection and the distant memory of its long gone ability to have positive feelings.[citation needed] 02 highly resembles a fallen angel. After defeating 02, the credits roll, showing various pictures of enemies and allies. One of those pictures shows 02 crying blood.

Nightmare

Nightmare (ナイトメア Naitomea) , also known as the The Nightmare Wizard[4], is the ultimate villain and final boss of Kirby's Adventure and its remake, Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land. After Nightmare invades the miraculous Fountain of Dreams, King Dedede splits up the Star Rod into seven pieces and gives them to his lieutenants, preventing Nightmare from using it to spread bad dreams. Kirby, not knowing this, finds the pieces and reunites them. Nightmare soon tries to steal it, but Kirby ends up using it to defeat him. Nightmare starts out as an orb that shoots stars, and he eventually transforms into a humanoid, vampire-like being with a tornado-like cloak for a body.[5]

Nightmare is also the main villain of the Kirby: Right Back at Ya! anime. He runs 'NightMare Enterprises' . He is given the name of NME in the English version. Depicted as has having a more threatening persona than in the game, he is instead bent on conquering the universe, and he dominates much of the universe from the series' beginning. He uses his ability to create an endless number of creatures known as demon beasts to conquer civilizations. He also sells them to unsuspecting customers for a profit, via a transportation network. His only opposition are the Star Warriors and Galaxy Soldier Army, though they are wiped out before the series begins. He is an embodiment of life's fear and suffering, and so he strives to bring more pain in order to increase his power, and will always exist as long as people hold fear in their hearts. In the finale, he was destroyed by Kirby using the Star Rod.

Supporting characters

Adeleine

Adeleine (アドレーヌ Adorēnu?) is an artist who originally appears in Kirby's Dream Land 3 (under the name Ado (アド Ado?)) as one of the boss characters taken over by Dark Matter. Her name was extended for her next appearance in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, where she is taken over once again, and later joins with Kirby after he frees her. She has the ability to make her paintings real, either creating monsters while under the control of Dark Matter or providing Kirby with help.

Dyna Blade

Dyna Blade (ダイナブレイド Daina Bureido?) is an enormous, armored bird that acts as both a friend and a foe in Kirby Super Star. In her self-titled game, she destroys all of Dream Land's crops to feed her chicks. Kirby defeats her, not knowing this, so he ends up feeding the chicks with apples and teaching them how to fly. In Revenge of Meta Knight, to thank Kirby for doing this, Dyna Blade helps Kirby get back on the Halberd only to be shot with a laser ray by the ship's crew.

In Kirby: Right Back at Ya!, Dyna Blade is shown as a legendary bird that is worshiped by the citizens of Cappytown. King Dedede hatches a plot to get rid of Kirby by tricking him into eating her egg, which infuriates Dyna Blade and causes her to chase and attack Kirby for much of the episode, until her chick appears and Kirby feeds it, placating Dyna.

Ribbon

Ribbon (リボン Ribon?) is a pink-haired fairy from the planet Ripple Star who appears in Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. She is a kind and brave character who attempted to escape her planet with the fairies' power crystal when it was invaded by Dark Matter.[6] In space, Dark Matter blobs ambushed her, shattered the crystal, and made her fall to Pop Star, where she lands on a stargazing Kirby and pleads with him for help.[6] Kirby agrees and they search for the Crystal shards scattered on various planets and thwart Dark Matter's invasion of Ripple Star along with Waddle Dee, Adeleine, and King Dedede. In the final battle, Ribbon and the crystal aid Kirby in defeating Zero-Two, the controlling force behind Dark Matter. In the ending cutscene of the game, she gives Kirby a kiss.

Keeby

Keeby is the yellow kirby which only officially appeared in Kirby's Dream Course. Only playable through multiplayer mode, Keeby was Kirby's rival to see who could who could get the most points in a race to get to the golf hole first.

Kirby's Allies

Kirby's Dream Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 3 feature various allies that can team up with Kirby and share powers. Kirby's Dream Land 2 introduces Rick (リック Rikku?) the Hamster, Coo (クー ?) the Owl, and Kine (カイン Kain?) the Ocean Sunfish. Kirby's Dream Land 3 introduces Nago (ナゴ?) the cat, Pitch (ピッチ Picchi?) the Bird, and Chuchu (チュチュ?) the octopus. In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, when Kirby uses the Cutter/Stone combo ability, he can randomly carve himself into a stone statue of his allies.

Enemies

Dark Mind

Dark Mind is the main villain of Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. His helper is Dark Meta Knight, and appears with Meta Knight before Kirby's Battle with Dark Mind.

Poppy Bro. Jr./Poppy Bro Sr.

Poppy Bros. Jr. is an elf-like enemy sometimes found on Maximum Tomatoes, apples, or on a mount. They may either do nothing, throw bombs or boomerangs. He is the Helper assigned to the Bomb ability in Kirby Super Star. Poppy Bros. Sr. serves as a boss and is an larger version of the Bomb version of Poppy Bros. Jr. They appear in a wide variety of games and sometimes give Kirby the Bomb or Cutter ability, though most often the former.

Chef Kawasaki

Chef Kawasaki (コックカワサキ Kokku Kawasaki?), also known as Cook Kawasaki, is an enemy that first appears in Kirby Super Star. He throws dishes and uses a frying pan that extends in an attempt to catch and fry Kirby for damage. He appears as a friendly character in Kirby's Dream Land 3, where he plays a game with Kirby. He appears in the anime, where he runs the only restaurant in town. He gives Kirby the Cook ability, which is also used in SSBB as Kirby's Final Smash.

He is voiced by Maddie Blaustein and Marc Thompson

Drawcia

Drawcia (ドロシア Doroshia?) is the main villain of Kirby Canvas Curse. She is an evil paint-witch and a dangerous foe. She curses Kirby into a ball at the start of the game and turns Dream Land into paint. She has two forms; Drawcia Sorceress and Drawcia Soul. Her first, humanoid form, can shoot balls of energy at Kirby and summon enemies to attack him (including Para Sourceresses in her image) by painting them. Her second form resembles a blob of paint, and she has many paint-related attacks. When she is defeated, her curse is reversed and Dream Land and Kirby come back to normal.

Knuckle Joe

Knuckle Joe (ナックルジョー Nakkuru Jō?) is a fighter who utilizes a variety of punches and kicks. He appears in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra as an enemy type and a helper to Kirby, and Super Smash Bros. Brawl as an Assist Trophy. He appears in the anime as the son of a legendary Star Warrior who seeks to avenge his father's death. He attacks Kirby, believing him to be the killer, though Meta Knight explains that his father was killed by his hand after he was unfortunately changed into a monster. He reappears multiple times to help Kirby. He is voiced by Minami Takayama in Japanese media[citation needed] and by Alésia Glidewell in the American version of Brawl.[7]

In the 4Kids dub he is voiced by Veronica Taylor.[citation needed]

Kracko

Kracko (クラッコ Kurakko?) is a boss that first appears in Kirby's Dream Land. It resembles a large cumulus cloud with spikes protruding from all sides, and a single large eyeball in the center. It attacks with electricity, rain, and by producing smaller enemies, such as Waddle Doos. Kracko is typically first seen in a weaker form, sometimes called Kracko Jr. Its characteristic eye remains, but it is surrounded by four balls, which it either spins slowly or launches at Kirby. This form either fights as a mini-boss earlier in various games, or immediately prior to transforming to its "adult" form. In Kirby Squeak Squad, a gray, electrified version called Mecha Kracko appears. It appears in the anime as a monster purchase by King Dedede to defeat Kirby, though it is soon defeated. For most of the episode, Kracko appeared as a storm that shot lightning throughout Cappytown, but when Kirby flew inside of it Kracko shot electric sword beams at Kirby giving him the sword ability. Kirby shot five sword beams back (the last one splitting Kracko in half). Kracko was shown the same way he is in the games. In Revenge Of The King, Kracko comes back not only as as Kracko Jr.'s Revenge, but also the more aggressive Kracko's Revenge.

Lololo and Lalala

Lololo and Lalala (ロロロ と ラララ Rororo to Rarara?) are two characters based on the pair of characters from the Eggerland / Adventures of Lolo series, another creation of HAL Laboratories. They appear once as the second boss fight in Kirby's Dream Land, where they push objects in an attempt to hurt Kirby. They also appear in the anime as friendly characters, where they are known as Fololo and Falala in the English dub, and they reside in King Dedede's castle. They are originally a single monster working for Nightmare Enterprises called Lola (Fofa in the English dub), but it is split into two by another monster and sent to Dedede as punishment for being too weak. They are both voiced by Tara Sands in the English dub. In Revenge of the King, they return as Lololo and Lalala's Revenge.

Meta-Knights

The Meta-Knights (メタナイツ Meta-Naitsu?) are a group of soldiers led by Meta Knight, who often uses them to test Kirby's skills throughout Kirby's Adventure, which is their first appearance. The Meta-Knights include Axe Knight (アックスナイト Akkusu Naito?), Mace Knight (メイスナイト Meisu Naito?), Javelin Knight (ジャベリンナイト Jaberin Naito?), and Trident Knight (トライデントナイト Toraidento Naito?). They are four distinct armored soldiers that each wield the weapon they are named after. The Meta-Knights return prominently in Kirby Super Star, where they aided Meta Knight in his attempt to conquer Dream Land via his armored airship, the Halberd. They also appeared in some other game modes, also fighting as a team. A version of them can also be summoned by Galacta Knight.

Mr. Shine and Mr. Bright

Mr. Shine & Mr. Bright (Mr. シャイン & Mr. ブライト Misutā Shain & Misutā Buraito?) are tag-team bosses first appearing in Kirby's Adventure. Mr. Shine appears as a crescent moon with a face and limbs, while Mr. Bright is a sun with similar features. They resemble as the Sun and the Moon in Dreamland. One always stays in the air, raining down projectiles, while the other attacks from the ground. One of their most lethal attacks is when they create a solar eclipse: Mr. Bright will blast the area with flames while Mr. Shine creates a patch of shadow, which is the only safe spot. They return in Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby's Dream Land 3, and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards. In Kirby Super Star, the real sun and the moon literally fought day and night due to a misunderstanding caused by Marx. In the anime, a monster named Kittari Hattari uses Moon and Star shaped staffs to split and paste his enemies. Presumably, this was an ode to Mr Shine and Mr Bright.

Paint Roller

Paint Roller (ペイントローラー Peinto Rōrā?) appears as a boss in Kirby's Adventure and Kirby: Canvas Curse. It wears a baseball cap and roller skates, and it is capable of drawing enemies that come to life. It appears in the anime as a monster bought by Dedede to fight Kirby.

Waddle Dee

Waddle Dees are common enemies. They first appeared in Kirby's Dream Land. They are creatures with no visible mouth, and are about the same size as Kirby. They simply walk around, maybe hop a little, and although a threat to Kirby, they usually don't even bother trying to hurt Kirby.

In Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, one Waddle Dee, in contrast to his usual role as a common enemy, helps Kirby in his adventure. Waddle Dee is, at first, possessed by Dark Matter, transformed into a Waddle Doo, and forced to engage Kirby. After defeating him, Waddle Dee returns to his peaceful self and catches up with Kirby to join his group alongside Ribbon. An average Waddle Dee also appears as a playable character in Kirby Canvas Curse.

In Kirby Super Star Ultra, a Waddle Dee wearing a blue kerchief appears prominently in the "Revenge of the King" mode, as a minion of King Dedede. Eventually, Dedede has him fight against Kirby, but is defeated. Waddle Dee is also fought as a joke boss in Kirby & the Amazing Mirror during Boss Endurance.

Multiple Waddle Dees appear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, along with Waddle Doos and Gordos, as part of King Dedede's "weapons", summoned through his side special move by being pulled from his left sleeve or by using his final smash, Waddle Dee Army.

Waddle Doo

waddle doo is a roundish creature with a red body stuby arms and shoes with a giant eyeball for a face. it shots beams and in his anime appereance has a small dagger for a weapon. He is king deedede's right hand man the leader of waddle dee troops and gives orders under king dedede's comands. If swallowed by Kirby he is given a jester hat and is able to shot powerful beams at foes(kirby).

Whispy Woods

Whispy Woods (ウィスピーウッズ Wisupī Uzzu?) is a large apple tree whose most common attack is dropping apples from his branches. He generally appears as a boss, usually the first one in many Kirby games and the first boss to appear in the Kirby series. Also, in Kirby Super Star (and its remake) there exists a related pair of creatures named Twin Whisps, and they can be found in Milky Way Wishes, Revenge of Meta Knight, Meta Knightmare Ultra, The Arena, and Helper to Hero. In Revenge of the King, Whispy Woods comes back as Whispy's Revenge. This time, its leaves are purple and it can drop poisonous apples and worms. It can also drop Gordos like Twin Whisps, and shoot gusts of wind and small twisters.

The anime features him as the king of the forest in Dream Land. Whispy is several hundred years old, and very wise, though he has a bit of a temper. He's very kind to his friends, but shows no mercy to those that threaten his kingdom. At first, he believes Kirby and his friends are intruders when they build a campfire around him. It turns out to be a setup by Dedede, who wants to destroy Whispy to build a golf course. After most of the forest is cut down, it is revived by one of Whispy's apples. Dedede continues to constantly try to build his golf course during the series, while Whispy becomes Kirby's ally.

Whispy makes appearances in the Super Smash Bros. series. He can be seen in Kirby-based stages, blowing wind at the characters and throwing apples.

He is voiced by Dan Green.

Marx

Marx (マルク Maruku?) Is the final boss from Milky Way Wishes in Kirby Super Star and Kirby Super Star Ultra. In the game, he was Kirby's ally, a round, lavender creature, similar to Kirby, but having no arms, wearing a jester hat, a bow tie, and brown shoes. In the beginning of Milky Way wishes, Marx can be seen bouncing on a large striped ball. He tricked the Sun and Moon into fighting in order to trick Kirby into summoning a giant wish-granting machine comet called Nova for him at the end of the galaxy. He then warns Kirby of this "catastrophe," sending Kirby on the Milky Way Wishes adventure. Once Nova had appeared, Marx appears, seemingly out of nowhere, pushes Kirby out of the way and wishes for control over Pop Star. Nova then sets itself on a collision course at Pop Star. Marx then turns into a more powerful form of himself, which is some what larger then his original form and has fangs, strange yellow wings that look like two long arms with claws, and hearts on the ends and hooks sprouting out of the hearts. He makes a cameo appearance in Kirby: Squeak Squad, in an unlockable picture with other series villains.

Marx Soul

Because Kirby stopped Nova from crashing into Pop Star, Marx attacks Kirby on the moon. Kirby defeats him, sending him flying into Nova, destroying Nova in the process. In the remake of the game, Kirby Super Star Ultra, it is shown that Marx does not survive this, though pieces of Nova fuse with his body and revives him as the more powerful Marx Soul. His wings are more reddish with discolored scales, and the hearts on his wings change from red to blue. The puffs on his hat are ripped, having the two colors of Marx's normal hat reversed and changed to magenta and aqua. Marx Soul also wears a pendant instead of his usual red bow tie. Instead of floppy brown shoes, he has brown, pointed Dutch clogging shoes. When Kirby defeats him, he splits in two and lets out a haunting scream, showing that Kirby has defeated him for the last time.

Galacta Knight

First appearance is in Kirby Super Star Ultra, where you first face him with Meta Knight in Meta Knightmare Ultra. He appears when Meta Knight, done with his training, wishes to the reformed Nova to be stronger and more experienced, and thus to challenge the greatest warrior in the galaxy. Galacta Knight is said by Nova to have been sealed away for fear that his power was too great. He has a white mask with a plus sign on it and a hot pink body. His eyes are red and glow just like Meta Knight's, except Galacta Knight's eyes are more rectangular. He wields a purple lance with a white shield that has a purple cross on the front. As for his wings, they are angel-like and glow white. Furthermore, you have to face him with Kirby in The True Arena in Kirby Super Star Ultra, in which he is the second to last boss. There are many rumors in the Kirby fan community as to the true identity of the masked warrior.

Anime-only Series (Exclusive) characters

Escargoon

Escargoon, Doctor Escargon (ドクター・エスカルゴン Dokutā Esukarugon?) in Japanese versions, is an anthropomorphic snail that serves King Dedede in the anime series. He is voiced by Naoki Tatsuta in the Japanese version and also by Ted Lewis in the English dub. He originally leaves his mother's farm to become famous and make his mother proud, but ends up serving Dedede instead. He helps Dedede's plots by creating various inventions to help defeat Kirby. The king also smashes Escargoon as much as he does Kirby.

Nightmare Enterprises

Nightmare Enterprises (Holy Nightmare Co. in the Japanese version) also known as N.M.E is an organization led by Nightmare. Its purpose is creating monsters selling them to unsuspecting customers through the internet in order to spread Nightmare's empire. One of Nightmare Enterprises' main employees is its Salesman (Customer Service in Japan), who sells monsters to King Dedede over the Internet. In the Japanese version, he speaks politely, but still doesn't pass up a chance to insult customers but in the dub, his personality is more like that of a stereotypical used car salesman. Until the final episode, only the top half of his body is shown and is revealed to be very short. Besides the monsters and by-products, Nightmare Enterprises also creates different kinds of warfare, ranging from laser guns to large ships. The company is housed by a massive spaceship with an eye on its front and cyberspace cities on its exterior.

Salesman in the original is voiced by Banjo Ginga and in the dubbed by Dan Green.

Sir Ebrum & Lady Like

Sir Ebrum (パーム Pāmu?) and Lady Like (メーム Mēmu?) are the parents of Tiff and Tuff, who work and live in King Dedede's Castle and keep peace between their strong-willed offsprings and their rambunctious employer. Sir Ebrum, the Cabinet Minister, is voiced by Takashi Nagasako in the Japanese version and Dan Green in the English dub, while Lady Like is voiced by Yuko Mizutani in the Japanese version and Kayzie Rogers using an Eva Gabor impression in the English dub. Lady Like is usually the one out of the two who is suspicious of Dedede's plots since they put her children in danger as well, although even Sir Ebrum gets suspicious sometimes.

Tiff and Tuff

Tiff and Tuff (Fūmu (フーム?) and Bun (ブン?) in the Japanese versions) are the brother and sister duo that accompany Kirby in the anime series. Tiff is voiced by Sayuri Yoshida in the original Japanese version and Kerry Williams in the English dub. Tuff is voiced by Rika Komatsu in the Japanese version and Kayzie Rogers in the English dub. They live in Dedede's castle along with their parents, Sir Ebrum and Lady Like, and help Kirby in his fight against Dedede's plots and Nightmare's monsters. Tiff is more interested in academics, such as chemistry and other studies, while Tuff is active in sports and other physical activities.
